In many precision measurement applications, telecentric optics are the preferred solution. Correct alignment between the lens, the illuminator and the object plane is paramount to maximizing the telecentric effect and capabilities of the system. In order to facilitate such an alignment, Opto Engineering® designed a line of mounting mechanics featuring a tilting mechanism for an easy and precise installation, allowing small adjustments to refine the optical alignment.
Hardware and software in perfect alignment
Adjustable mounting mechanics are extremely helpful in aligning lenses and lights, but how do you assess the quality of the alignment itself?
Thanks to built in tools designed to achieve optimal alignment, TCLIB Suite by Opto Engineering® is the perfect answer to this question.
Combining the power of the hardware and software, it will maximize the system, to work at its peak, with little effort.

Because of the installation method, the use of CMTH064, CMTH080 and CMTH096 voids the warranty on the cleaning of the compatible lenses. For this reason the installation on the illuminators is preferable and strongly recommended.
